AVR-Rust is not distributed with a pre-built libcore crate. Instead, it is compiled on-demand when a crate uses it via the Rust
-Z build-std flag.
There are many hundreds of variants of AVR microcontroller, and it is not feasible to distribute runtime libraries for all of them within a regular Rust distribution.
Due to this, any time a crate is built for AVR,
-Z build-std=core should be passed to
cargo build -Z build-std=core --target avr-atmega328p.json --release
Then you will get a "cannot find crate for 'core'" error when you compile the crate. The only crates that can
avoid this are those that are
#[no_core] crates, such as
